The Latino New Play Festival will present Mamacita and the Negrito. When the street-savvy, intellectual Lorena runs into the irresistibly charming, barrio boy Ricky, romance and passion ignite almost instantly leading to one life-changing gift and a seemingly split-second decision. Nearly 20 years later that baby boy is on a mission to find closure in the "woman with red lips and a Spanish name" who never said goodbye loud enough for him to hear it. Issues of colorism, culture, and identity overlap in this poetic piece about love and the ability to live fully “like if tomorrow were right now.”
